Moscow’s Golovinsky District Court sentenced graduate student and anarchist activist Azat Miftakhov to six years in prison on Monday, January 18, after finding him guilty of attacking a United Russia office in 2018.

Miftakhov, who studied in the mathematics faculty at Moscow State University, pleaded not guilty to the hooliganism charges.

Two other suspects who earlier pleaded guilty in the case were given suspended sentences: Elana Gorban was sentenced to four years probation and Andrey Eykin to two years.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn on Anarchists: Review of “The Gulag Archipelago”

From Industrial Worker by Raymond S. Solomon

Review of “The Gulag Archipelago”

It was mostly Socialists Revolutionaries (SR) and the Anarchists who received the worst sentences in Czarist Russia.
